With our origins as a client tool for Analysis Services, FluenceXL now connects to a wide range of data sources including Power BI, SAP HANA, IBM TM1, Oracle Essbase and relational SQL databases.
We work in an extended Excel environment which users are comfortable in, addressing PivotTable restrictions and with straightforward web and mobile deployment. The result is the sophistication and capability of a bespoke BI tool extended with the flexibility of Excel. Business users are more productive, and in control of their reporting and analysis needs. Faster, more flexible report design frees up users time for value-added analysis, while IT can focus on the data platform rather than responding to adhoc business reporting requests.
We have seen many customers successfully upgrade from competitive products. They are typically searching for more flexibility, better data visualisation, or in some cases to replicate a strong in-Excel client experience which Pivot Tables can't match.
FluenceXL's in-Excel model helps generate early traction with the business users, often key to a project's ultimate success.Here are some thoughts on the most frequent upgrades we have seen over the years.
We work closely with key customers and partners to ensure FluenceXL helps them work smarter in all aspects of reporting. We value customer feedback and many of our best ideas have been customer inspired. A number of regional customer events have helped highlight some of the main benefits customers see from the products.
